Two design challenge activities that could last for one or more extended sessions in a formal lesson, code club or maker space context.
In the Tree protector project, students use the radio on the BBC micro:bit to create a prototype sensor to send alerts when trees are being illegally cut down.
In the more advanced Auto-farmer project, students make moisture sensors and create a prototype of an automated farming system.
